VOLUNTEERS have been busy with their bin bags this week as they make their local area look spick and span. The area involved is on the Mersey Way national footpath route, between Dungeon Point and Oglet Lane where it joins the beach, and includes areas above and below the cliffs. It a picturesque area with a magnificent view across the Mersey Estuary. More than a hundred people have helped and will stand back and admire their efforts tomorrow at the final session.

The Liverpool Culture Company's Creative Communities initiative has helped fund the event. Creative Environment manager, Sarah Vasey, said:- "The event is right on the border of Liverpool and Halton, so the 2 areas have been working together and we're hoping for twice as many volunteers as normal! Oglet Shore should be a much nicer place to be once we've finished our big tidy-up."

Liverpool city council's Neighbourhood Officer Arthur Savage has rolled up his sleeves to help. He said:- "Unfortunately this area's relative remoteness on the edge of a large settlement makes it a favourite location for fly tipping which blights the area. It is this problem that we hope to address."

Volunteers from the Merseyfest event in Sefton Park will be taking part. The Christian community has got together in Liverpool to provide their time for free to help within the community. Also involved are the South Liverpool Neighbourhood Management Team and Halton Borough Council.
